Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Floral. American cream soda, fizzy sherbet, lemonade. A little water concentrates the aroma well. Has delicate complexity and a dry edge.
Palate: Fragrant. Icing sugar, elderflower, polished wood. Light and rather fragile.
Finish: Sweet. Grapes dusted with icing sugar.
Comment: Like lace on the palate. Treat carefully.
7.5
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Insistent pepper and some malt.
Palate: Some initial smoke, unexpected weightiness, quite mouhtcoating and malty. Pears, mixed spice, and melon - especially when reduced.
Finish: Hot, salt, with oak notes lingering.
Comment: Perhaps 12 years in the cask is slightly too long for most Rosebanks. This does not seem a particularly well-behaved example.
